THE LIMITATION ACT 1935

SOLICITORS HELPLINE 1800 633634

There are time limits within which Western Australia medical negligence solicitors should either settle claims or issue legal proceedings in a court of law. The primary legislation is to be found in The Limitation Act 1935 and any subsequent amendements. In 2003 the WA Attorney General announced the Government’s intention to “overhaul and modernise” the Limitation Act 1935.

The purpose of these time limits is to bring finality to potential claims because memories fade, witnesses die or move away and documentation or records become lost or corrupted. Most limitation legislation is complex and difficult with numerous exceptions and exemptions and varying time limits dependent on the type of injury, the age and mental capacity of the claimant, the date that the injury was or should have been discovered and the behaviour of the potential defendent.

Failure to comply with these time limits can result in loss of the opportunity to claim compensation. Reference should always be made to a qualified solicitor to obtain information and advice on these time limits as soon as possible after the event giving rise to the potential claim. If you would like free specialist advise just complete the contact form and a no win no pay solicitor will telephone you with no charge and no obligation.
